Does each process have its own PCB or there is just one?

To my understanding, each process in the operating system contains its own separate Process Control Block. Can someone explain this to me. Does each process have its own PCB or is there just one PCB that contains all the information for all the processes?
  1. Each Process has its own PCB which is usually stored as a structure.
  2. A linked list of PCBs’  is maintained to keep track of all the processes.

Though it may be implemented differently on various operating systems, the basic concept is this much only. So, all in all, you might say that there is a process list that consists of PCBs’  of all the processes.
